Texas Rangers left fielder Shin-Soo Choo appeared to have a leadoff home run off Colorado Rockies starter Jon Gray Saturday. Then, Garrett Hampson robbed him of that joy with a gorgeous leaping catch.

Check out the highway robbery here.

The best part? Hampson, normally an infielder, just started playing in the outfield last year.

He sure looked like a natural there, and he saved a run with this brilliant catch.
